Killing spree aimed to quell movement: Aasiya
Srinagar, Aug 20: Dukhtaran-e-Millat chairperson, Syeda Aasiya Andrabi on Friday accused the Government of killing youth and teenagers to suppress the ongoing movement.
In a statement, Aasiya said the Government had turned the Valley into a garrison by imposing continuous curfews to quell the sentiments. She condemned the indiscriminate firing on people at Aanchar Soura here injuring three members of a family and killing of 8-year old Milad of Kulgam who succumbed to his injuries.
“Not a single day passes when a Kashmiri fells prey to bullets of troops and cops. Every Kashmiri family is in grief. New Delhi is carrying out genocide of Kashmiris to suppress the movement,” she said.
The statement said Aasiya held a meeting with the vice-president of Muslim League to review the Hurriyat (G)’s ongoing ‘Quit Jammu Kashmir Movement’ and chalk our future strategies to carry it forward. The meeting maintained that the youth had been playing an important role in the ongoing movement.
The leaders urged the High Court Bar Association to provide all possible support to its incarcerated president Mian Abdul Qayoom and general secretary GN Shaheen.
Paying tributes to the youth killed during the last two months, the two leaders vowed to carry the movement to its logical conclusion.
